Hearts vs Hamilton Academical Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hearts picked up a second consecutive draw as they were involved in a goalless draw with Ross County during the weekend. This was the second consecutive match at the Tynecastle stadium in which Craig Levein’s team were frustrated over the course of 90 minutes. Hearts did have several moments in the game, but Ross County shot stopper Aaron McCarey was able to come up with answers for every question asked. Hamilton made it five league matches without defeat after a 1-1 draw with Hibernian. Simon Murray’s capitalised on Brandon Baker’s great run to come up with an opening goal in the 29th minute. Hamilton equalised – with effectively their best chance of the game – through Antonio Rojano.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hamilton have been involved in a string of positive results and their trip to the Tynecastle stadium could also be an encounter where the two teams are difficult to separate. Hearts are low on confidence after going winless in the last five games. Despite being at home, Hearts are struggling for results. Hamilton have lost only twice in the last five away games, but their away record against Hearts is extremely poor with six consecutive losses. I would go with a victory for Hearts, who did create some good opportunities against Ross County. The recent matches involving Hearts have been tight affairs with less than 2.5 goals being the predominant figure. This is identical to the record of Hamilton, who have been involved in more than 2.5 goals in two out of the last five. I would bet on under 2.5 goals in this match.

Hearts win – 3/4

Total goals under 2.5 – 17/20

Hearts Preview

Hearts’ good run of form upon the arrival of Craig Levein has dissipated rather quickly with the team only picking up two points from a possible 15 over the last few games. Hearts were expected to go on a string of positive results when they returned to the revamped Tynecastle stadium, but the team are yet to get a home win. Hearts, however, will be at home for the next four SPL matches. Esmael Goncalves and Kyle Lafferty are the leading scorers at Hearts with five goals each.

Hearts Team News

Roxy Currie (collateral ligament) is the only long-term injury worry for manager Craig Levein coming into the match.

Hamilton Academical Preview

The recent run of games for Hamilton has produced a good return of points so much so that the club are now on the fringes of making it into the top six places of the SPL 2017-18 campaign. Hamilton are unbeaten in the last five games across all competitions. This revival comes after suffering six consecutive losses in the SPL. This run of games threatened to put the club in a relegation battle, but the recent rain has lifted Hamilton to within two points off sixth placed St Johnstone. A feature of Hamilton during this run has been goals with the team managing eight in the last five. David Templeton, Rakish Bingham, and Giannis Skondras are the top scorers with three goals each.

Hamilton Academical Team News

Hamilton manager Martin Canning does not have issues about fitness and availability.
